Tieto sets up a data center in St Petersburg, Russia to serve its Nordic customers
European IT services vendor Tieto has established a data center in St Petersburg, Russia to serve its Nordic customers who have operations in Russia.
The center was set up at the beginning of January and has an international ISO certificate for its high security and reliability. Tieto said it provides a new service concept based on capacity services that use technologies including partitioning and virtualization.
Tieto’s capacity services include solutions for processing as well as storage capacity. The needed capacity is measured and planned based on the business application’s actual needs. Capacity solution is scalable upwards and downwards and it gives the customer maximum agility and adaptability. It also offers services for application operations, connectivity and security, and back-up and restore.
Tuomo Summanen, country manager at Tieto Russia, said: Data center providers in Russia typically offer space rental and connectivity for servers they do not own and manage themselves. Such centers are often referred to as server hotels. Our new data center supports Tieto’s strategic aims to expand in Russia. We are now able to serve our Nordic as well as local customers in the North West Russia area with the latest technology, highest reliability, and proven service concept.
